Modeling Syntactic-Semantic Dependency Correlations in Semantic Role Labeling Using Mixture Models

Junjie Chen, Xiangheng He, Yusuke Miyao
2022 Proceedings of the 60th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (Volume 1: Long Papers)   unpublished
In this paper, we propose a mixture modelbased end-to-end method to model the syntactic-semantic dependency correlation in Semantic Role Labeling (SRL).  ...  We target the variation of semantic label distributions using a mixture model, separately estimating semantic label distributions for different hop patterns and probabilistically clustering hop patterns  ...  In this paper, we propose a mixture model (Pearson, 1894) based semantic dependency parser for SRL where we target the dependence of semantic label distributions on Shortest Syntactic Dependency Path (  ...

Computational linking theory [article]

Aaron Steven White, Drew Reisinger, Rachel Rudinger, Kyle Rawlins, Benjamin Van Durme
2016 arXiv   pre-print
A linking theory explains how verbs' semantic arguments are mapped to their syntactic arguments---the inverse of the Semantic Role Labeling task from the shallow semantic parsing literature.  ...  To further investigate the behavior of these models, we develop a measurement model in the spirit of previous work in semantic role induction: the Semantic Proto-Role Linking Model.  ...  Experiment 2 The sequence of syntactic positions in each clause was used as the dependent variable. For instance, (5) would be labeled {subj, obj, obl}.  ...

Integrating Topics and Syntax

Thomas L. Griffiths, Mark Steyvers, David M. Blei, Joshua B. Tenenbaum
2004 Neural Information Processing Systems  
We present a generative model that uses both kinds of dependencies, and can be used to simultaneously find syntactic classes and semantic topics despite having no representation of syntax or semantics  ...  Statistical approaches to language learning typically focus on either short-range syntactic dependencies or long-range semantic dependencies between words.  ...  This model can be used to extract clean syntactic and semantic classes and to identify the role that words play in a document.  ...

A Dataset for Semantic Role Labelling of Hindi-English Code-Mixed Tweets

Riya Pal, Dipti Sharma
2019 Proceedings of the 13th Linguistic Annotation Workshop  
While there is relevant ongoing research on Semantic Role Labelling (SRL) and on building tools for code-mixed social media data, this is the first attempt at labelling semantic roles in Hindi-English  ...  With the help of these mappings and the dependency tree, we propose a baseline rule based system for Semantic Role Labelling of Hindi-English code-mixed data.  ...  Dependency labels provide us with rich syntactic-semantic relations which facilitates mapping between dependency labels and Propbank labels.  ...
